Cadet Corporal Brett Herbig earned the Alpha Company Leadership Award. Cadet Herbig was selected to represent his school for distinguishing himself as a Cadet Platoon Leader on day one of JCLC. This is a very difficult position for a cadet of his LET level to serve because of his inexperience. But, he readily accepted the challenge. His knowledge of JROTC LET 1 Curriculum earned him the privilege of representing WCHS at the Battalion Leadership Board. He was amongst 19 different school representatives.
After completing a 68 question Classroom Performance System Test, he was one of five cadets with the highest percentage of correct answers.
Another notable JROTC performance happened this summer when Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Ethan Morrow attended the U.S. Naval Academy Summer Seminar. He got a weeklong preview of what to expect if he is selected to attend the Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland. He was one of 800 high school juniors from across the nation to attend the camp. He finished the Seminar ranked in the top 20 percent of his class receiving an excellent rating for his performance. He currently serves as the WC JROTC Battalion Commander, the Raider Team executive officer, as well as working at a full-time job at Beaver Creek while maintaining a 4.0 grade point average.
Congratulations to both of these outstanding cadets.
